Subject: awesome!
so awesome i am getting more and more into these rehearsal tapes. i disagree though, only a small segment of bobby's riffs is similar to china cat. they are basically just riffs in a frequently used dead scale (mixolydian) and the only thing similar is the beginning four notes. its repetitive, but if you're learning a part of the song on an instrument its great to just sit with and learn it with them. great feeling when ur "jammin with the boys" - jdarks@youtube quote

Fortunately this session is well-labeled, so it's easy to find tracks! (It's actually a compilation of sessions from June 3, 4, and 5.) It starts with the blues instrumental again; then they practice the Crazy Fingers intro for a while, and manage a couple complete instrumental takes, which sound about the same as on 4-2-75. (I haven't checked, but this sounds like the same rehearsal tape under both dates; there doesn't seem to be any difference.) Then it's time for more Franklin's Tower - they work on different ways of playing the riff, with Keith's groove very dominant at this point. Check out the change from track 21 to track 29, which is getting close to the song we know - track 32 seems to be from a different day and is even closer (Weir plays the China Cat riff in it!). Finally we have a few run-throughs of the instrumental Help on the Way, which is probably a repeat from the other 6-5-75 file. Overall this is a nice, interesting session if you can handle repeated takes - and nirvana for Franklin's fans.

I find it fascinating to hear some of my all-time favorite GD songs being born, it's very cool to be able to hear this nice sweet treat!
